99% of these in dash dvd players have this safety feature to prevent you from watching the dvd movie while driving down the road. There is a wire thats supposed to be hooked up to the parking brake, that way the video only works while the parking brake is on. With MOST of these units, you can bypass this annoyance by grounding the wire thats supposed to go to the parking brake switch.. (instead of hooking the wire to the switch hook it to a ground wire) FYI it is against u.s. federal law for the driver of a vehicle to watch a motion picture while driving down the road.. but that doesent stop most of us lol... -ampman

Very funny, somebody spoke of breaking the law. What about all the thousands and thousands and thousands of people that are using XBMC, Kodi, Jarvis and watching excellent quality bootleg content. Or how about the fact that quite a few teenagers get their learner's permit but hardly ever have a licensed driver sitting next to them while driving LOL. How about underage drinking, and fake College ID's. We could go on and on and on. So to even bother mentioning that a law is being broken is so hilariously trivial. Anybody that's looking to do something like this is well aware of the consequences. Anyone who says otherwise is full of baloney LOL even if it's Oscar Myers. Almost forgot one of my favorites, driving above the posted speed limit. Everyone and their grandma has done this multiple times easily.

Cant play dvd. just get sound and message on screen saying for your safty dont watch while driving


Hello g60aminal,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: Just like the message says on the screen. DVD playing while driving is disabled on all current "Dash-Mounted" DVD Navigation systems. It is a safety requirement that was mandated by most States' Department of Transportation. The goal was to inhibit drivers from being distracted with DVD movies being played on the Navigation system while the vehicle is in motion.
You will notice this feature kick in if you have the vehicle running, and in park; then place it in gear and you will see the video stop and display the safety message while the audio keeps playing.

Have a great day!

Have sound but no display


You might need to check your wiring, it's a safety feature with dvd players. Check the ground wire.

I have a Pioneer AVIC-D2 DVD Nav/6.5" Screen/AM/FM/CD Player Car Video Player i can play music on it ,wen i insert a dvd the screen goes black i can hear the dvd playing on my speakers but no picture comes...


there is a safety brake wire that needs to be hooked up. If it was installed professionally, have them explain it to you.There is not supposed to be any video players in view of the driver while in motion. Stop your car and put on the parking brake. If you installed it yourself, you probably didnt hook up the wire. Look inthe install manual for DVD safety wire.

Sound, but no picture


Hi,

Initially, this would either be a defective LCD panel or its interface. A way to verify is to play the portable DVD using an external video monitor such as your TV. If still gray or blue screen (no video) even in the TV/monitor, then it would be the video interface/circuitry. If the video is displayed, then it would just be the LCD panel display.

If it turns out to be the LCD display, it is very possible that it is a backlighting issue. Most likely, it would be in the inverter and/or CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamps. This is a relatively easy repair by re-soldering. It is perhaps more of a task to open the panel lid/cover of the LCD display.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Irst thing to check is to Make sure Parking brake lead (green) is being grounded properly otherwise safety message should appear on display notifying you and You will get no DVD video only audio Refer to owners manual on this issue. If that does not do it you may try resetting unit look for small Round hole on front of radio. Depress with pen point.
Just a couple guesses.
